Franco-German Energy Transition Week for Cross-Border Climate Protection

1st Franco-German Energy Transition Week took place in January 2019. Participating municipalities drew attention to climate protection through joint projects and strengthened German-French friendship at the same time.

In 21 case studies, the EUKI project BEACON evaluated national climate policies in European countries. The Latvian Baltic Energy Efficiency Facility (LABEEF) is a company that was founded in 2016 to facilitate the deep renovation of the Latvian housing sector, which is dominated by prefabricated high-rise buildings erected between 1941 and 1992 during era of Soviet occupation. LABEEF aims to support energy service companies (ESCOs) that implement renovation measures in multifamily buildings based on energy performance contracting (EPC).


Factsheet: Green Savings Programme in the Czech Republic

In 21 case studies, the EUKI project BEACON evaluated national climate policies in European countries. The New Green in Savings Programme (NGiS, 2014-2021) of the Czech Republic financially supports renovation, efficient heating systems and nearly zero energy buildings in the area of residential buildings. It is the programme with the highest potential to reduce GHG emissions in the building sector in the Czech Republic and obtains most of its financial resources through EU ETS auction revenues. Forecasts say that it may well reduce GHG emissions by 1 MtCO2e per year until 2020 with a cost efficiency of 150 EUR/ per tCO2e.
